Preplacement testing

  1. I am sorry if this was already posted.
    I am applying at an agency for per diem long term care. I am required to take a test. Does anyone know what I should expect? Would it be soley LTC type questions? Med calculation?

    I just took one for Maxim and boy did I feel like an idiot. I guess its true... if you don't use it, you lose it.

    There's all kinds of questions... IVs, Rx, care plans, patient care for specific illness, etc. It didn't focus on one nursing setting (LTC or hospital) either. Another thing I didn't like about it is that I'm an LPN and there were tons of RN questions on there. I had no clue the answer to some of those so I guessed.

    Will you still get a job if you don't do well?

    I guess they hired me. I got fingerprinted and drug tested. They gave me the test back and requested that I go over the questions I missed.
